How is it possible for anyone in this day and age to be bored?

Seriously. Whenever I hear someone complain about how bored they are, all I can think is, "How?"
There's always something to keep you busy. I have two jobs, a boyfriend, a portfolio to polish and submit to publishers, a line of greeting cards to develop, a website to maintain, Spanish to learn, and just the activities of day-to-day living in general. And that doesn't even include all the stuff I would do if I had time: roller derby, dance classes, writing group, stitch-n-bitch, being in a band, creating artwork to display in a gallery...
It just astounds me that while every single second of my life is scheduled and every single errand and activity must be squeezed and penciled in, there are people out there who cannot find enough things to occupy their time.  Who are these people? And can I borrow some of their time?
If you're bored, it's your own damn fault. That's all I'm saying.
Thanks for listening, Internet.

My mother used to say only boring people get bored. I think she might be onto something.
